Always Remember Him: May 29th-June 4th

Symbolism is a powerful hidden language that can profoundly accelerate our learning. Layers of meaning can be revealed and complex concepts can be more easily understood through symbols. As we learn about the meaning behind scriptural symbols, we obtain a deeper understanding of spiritual truths, the plan of salvation, and the vital role that Jesus Christ plays in that plan.


Jesus Christ is the light of the world! He is the true vine! He is the lamb of God and He is the good shepherd! The symbols of bread and water carry a dual meaning. Jesus the living water and the bread of life. But these symbols also remind us of the Lord’s atoning sacrifice.


We hope that this lesson will help you to have some meaningful discussions with your little ones about the symbols and the ordinance of the sacrament, the means by which the Lord has instructed us to “remember Him always.”

You will need to collect the following objects to use for the lesson: bread, water, a flashlight, a small branch or vine, and a toy sheep (you can use an image of a sheep if a toy is not available). You will also need a small blanket to place over the objects. Before the lesson begins, place all of the objects side by side and cover them with the blanket.

 

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N


Tell the children that there are 5 symbols hidden underneath the blanket that teach us about Jesus Christ! Tell the children to silently look at each of the symbols to think about what they teach us about Jesus, then carefully remove the blanket to reveal the symbols.


Once the children have had a moment to reflect, explain that these are all symbols of Jesus Christ that are used in the scriptures. Then, discuss the following questions:


1) What is the bread a symbol of? (It is a symbol of the body of Jesus Christ when He died for us. Jesus is also the bread of life, giving everlasting life to all who believe in Him!)


2) What is the water a symbol of? (It is a symbol of the blood of Jesus Christ when He died for us. Jesus is also the “living water,” giving everlasting life to all who believe in Him!)


3) What is the light a symbol of? (Jesus is the light of the world! He lights the way for us and He is the source of truth and spiritual light!)


4) What is the vine a symbol of? (Jesus is the living vine and we are the branches. He gives us life, and with Him we can bring for “much fruit!”)


5) What is the sheep a symbol of? (He is the good shepherd and he cares for His sheep! He is also the lamb of God, and was willing to sacrifice His life for us.)

Say: “Now we are going to watch a video about two of these symbols: the bread and the water! Jesus taught us to use these symbols every week to remember Him when we take the sacrament. Let’s watch and see why Jesus wants us to take the sacrament every week.”

Discuss the following questions after watching the video:


1) Why do you think Jesus wants us to take the sacrament every week? (So that we will always remember Him.)


2) Why do we need Jesus Christ? (He is our Savior! He overcame sin and death, so that we can be resurrected and so we can live with Heavenly Father again!)

 

➤ S C R I P T U R E


Read the following scriptures and discuss the questions that follow.



And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.


1) Who taught us about this symbol? (Jesus Christ is the one who taught us about this symbol.)


2) What did Jesus say that the bread represents? (His body.)



And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.


And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.


1) Who taught us about this symbol? (Jesus Christ is the one who taught us about this symbol.)


2) What did Jesus say that the water represents? (His that He shed for us when he died for us.)



And this shall ye always observe to do, even as I have done, even as I have broken bread and blessed it and given it unto you.


And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.


1) When did Jesus command us to do this? How often? (Always!)


2) When do you think Jesus wants us to remember Him? How often? (Always!)


3) If we always remember Him, what promise did Jesus make to us? (We will have His Spirit to be with us!)
